You might just be a Salk Owner
« on: 1 Aug 2013, 06:44 am »
And now for something completely different

You might just be a Salk owner if....

1) you used to think RAAL was an eastern mantra
2) you plan a vacation stop in a suburb of Detroit
3) one of the biggest life decisions you will ever make is "which veneer?"
4) you watch the classifieds and try to justify a new set for a room with no system
5) all your upgrades share the same name
6) those creative maternal  months tick slowly but are so worth it
7) your neighbor 3 doors down has never been in your house but you invite complete strangers from upstate for a lively night of wine and listening
8) you've spent more time enjoying photos of all  the glorius cabinet art than a French curator in the Louvre
9) behind every good man is a great women, you've had the pleasure of meeting Mary
10) you rely on sneek peaks from Big Red and Nuance to see how things are coming along
11) for Nigel Tufnel...     
Your sigificant other has long ago turned out the light as you've been drawn in by the audio circle noose

Yours?

13). That stagnant music collection now keeps you very busy
14)  everything else in the chain whispers or screams upgrade
15)  you thought Van Alstine was a texas herd not a favorable front end  flavor

Sweet 16).  Your system is a true blessing
1 Timothy 6: 17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

I'll play:

17)  You are very comfortable making your purchase because you know the company stands behind their product.
18)  Burger King stole the "have it your way" slogan from Salk.

20)  People look around your room for the surround speakers they think they hear when just listening to your 2.0 channel system  :thumb:

21) You turn off your stereo, but angelic music continues to eminate from the speakers.
22) You've recently developed a stubborn case of Chronic Staring Syndrome.
23) Your wife frequently finds you in a nonresponsive trance-like state, sitting in your favorite chair.

Ok, I better go work...

25)  you have nicer cloths, and polish (and use them) for your speakers than that neglected 4 wheel beauty in your garage
26)  when you think of nuance  it's not a "subtle detail" but "another audio circle insight"
27) your sd card on your camera is full of photos of FEDEX delivery guys
28) you thought Van Alstine was a herd of cattle not the amp driving the demo to the stampede
29) your wife even joins in and in no time starts whispering in your ear "room" "treatments"
30) you are sleep deprived from the fervor that has caught on regarding your once boring musical collection
31) you're grilling dilemma isn't gas or charcoal, it's on / off and how much stuffing
32) you spend less time reading the liner notes and more time starring at the audio eye candy
33) you have the Oakland headquarters on speed dial

34) let's see, buddy offers you $200 concert front row seats, nah I'll stay home, better sound in the den
35) I'm good up close, but I'm baffled in the mid range
36) the "that's not quit what I'm looking for" spawns latest custom design
37) lobster and caviar sound and I still have the kids college funds
38) stereo know it all say "never heard of it?  and I've got every Stereophile issue going back to the 90s"
39) where else can you chime in in a "name that speaker" face off



keep them coming

I smell 100)

40) you cry when you listen to music
41) your friends ask who you are on the phone because your voice changed after listening to music
42) you love your speakers because of their flaws and not in spite of them

Lol - this thread rocks audiotom!  Thanks for starting it.  With all this petty stuff going on in the forums lately, number (sweet) 16 is great to help bring me back down to earth and enjoy what I've been given.  Well stated.

44) You buy your first pair of hi-fi speakers on reputation alone (quality and service) without hearing them and realize any future upgrade will be coming from the same place

I agree 100%. I have the same thoughts as my STs and Song Center (dome tweeter) will be replaced by a set of Supercharged STs/Center in the not to distant future :).
